Albert Castiglia | Big Dog | Review

Albert Castiglia [pronounced ka - steel - ya] was born in New York and raised in Miami since he was 5. He started taking guitar lessons at the age of 12. He found a passion for playing the guitar and has been perfecting his craft ever since.

Castiglia got his first big break when legendary harmonica player Junior Wells heard him play and sing. Castiglia was able to travel with Wells on several world tours.

America, it time to know LeE HARVeY OsMOND

Canadian songsmith-troubadour Tom Wilson has been a well known musician throughout Canada, Europe and many other parts of the world for along time. But he is largely a best kept secret to his southern neighbors in the states. I predict this is going to change. Having earned a popular reputation as a founding member of country-alt-rock band Blackie and The Rodeo Kings and Junkhouse, Tom has reinvented as LeE HARVeY OsMOND.

The New Stew | Philadelphia, PA | Review

“Oh man, Bill Withers, oooh, he just gets me all over, you know?” a middle-aged woman I’d never met revealed to me as we waited for The New Stew to take the stage last night.

In just the second night of their limited run playing Withers’ classic 1973 album, Live at Carnegie Hall, it was clear that all over feeling is likely to spread.

A Look Back: Grateful Dead | May 7th, 1977

The Grateful Dead’s 1977 Spring Tour is considered my many to be one of their best.

The Brothers Comatose | City Painted Gold

On their third album City Painted Gold, San Francisco string-benders The Brothers Comatose have deepened their rocking acoustic prowess to new heights. The musical comradery between banjo and guitar-slinging brothers Alex and Ben Morrison renders authentic each time they step onstage.

AOD - Tales From The Oregon Trail | Review

Assembly of Dust (AOD) will be releasing their latest offering of live concert cuts in Tales From The Oregon Trail on May 3, a demonstration of when the jamband legends brought their face-melting folk-rock to Portland, Oregon.  While the lineup has changed a bit over the years, the current lineup brings the same level a musicianship, energy, and improvisation that AOD has been known for since their formation in 2002.  AOD was create

Chick Corea & Bela Fleck | Sonoma State U

Almost a decade ago, in a blissful oddity odyssey, master jazz pianist Chick Corea began collaborating with the greatest living banjo player Béla Fleck. It wasn’t quite as peculiar in Fleck’s world, as the genre-abolishing maestro's band The Flecktones thrived on inexplicable instrumental possibilities. He had also previously toured with Americana pianist and bandleader Bruce Hornsby.

Jazz is Phish & Grant Farm's Album Release

Phish has been my favorite band for the last 20 years. Since then, I have seen them 179 times. In addition, I have been a fan of jazz music since I was born. My grandfather was a jazz guitarist with Artie Shaw and a few other big bands in Philadelphia.
